Klaus Münch, Untitled,1998

Freiburg, 1953

Material: Gold, silver and purple serigraph on Plexiglas


Location: Rectorate, University of Cassino and Southern Lazio


This piece consists of three oval shapes coated with serigraphs on plexiglass (a serigraph is a type of printing). The individual shapes are of different sizes and colors: the purple one is smallest, the silver one is medium-sized, and the gold one is largest. The surfaces are all smooth, but intentionally vary in opacity, reflecting their surroundings to varying degrees.

Although is untitled and therefore without any explicit clues from Münch, this work recalls the individual elements of matter (cells, molecules) and explores the relationship between the infinitely small and infinitely large in keeping with many of his other sculptures.
